Stayed one night on business. Took the shuttle from SFO directly to the hotel. Very convenient! The hotel was a typical Courtyard - which is comforting, actually, because you know what to expect. This place was conveniently located next to a shopping mall with restaurants and a grocery store. The front desk staff was SOOO nice and accommodating. I will... More

The Courtyard is close to the highway with several dining options in the area. Its just a short drive into San Francisco or to wine country. We stayed here at the end of the day leaving San Fran and heading back to Napa. The hotel itself was great. The room was clean and up to date. The bar area was... More

Really enjoyed our recent trip to Navato, CA and our stay at the Marriott. We were walk-in customers as our original reservation at another property did not pan out. Our reception was handled professionally and efficiently and we were given a very nice king room on the 4th floor. The room was clean, spacious and had a huge bathroom area.... More

Intending to stay close to San Francisco but not in the hustle and bustle or the inherent costs associated with it, we decided that Novato would probably fit the bill. We were wrong. While the lobby of this hotel is clean well maintained etc that could not be said of the rooms. Standard rooms are very basic, in need of... More

We stayed over a holiday weekend and found the hotel to be very nice. The sole failure was that we did not get any housekeeping service! By the time we got back to the room it was too late and we just dealt with it. Still, beyond that. Not bad...

Good location. Friendly and clean. Our room had very worn furnishings, especially the sofa, the cushions were very flat and not comfortable at all. The bathroom had a cracked sink and cracked tiles in the shower. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay here very much.

Had a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool. The room was large enough and had a king bed, very comfortable. I swam in the heated pool in the morning (where it was 48 degrees outside) and there were those foam "noodles" for me to use. Very nice. The "bistro" had cereal, milk and a banana for about $5...

Comfortable, clean, quiet rooms. We ate in the hotel dining room. The food was tasty but extremely slow in coming. The room rate was pretty high but about on a par with the area. The staff was very friendly.

This is a decent hotel in Novato, CA. The room (we upgraded to have a pull-out couch) was almost $300 after taxes. Really? Near the freeway, restaurants and a grocery store so those are good things. The employees were lovely. Other than the price it is a nice hotel and convenient access to Marin and Sonoma counties.

Stayed here for one night business trip on 9/26/15. My room was very clean. The hotel was nice and quiet, (made for a good night's sleep!). The staff was professional and friendly. I would definitely stay here again if travel brings me back to Novato.
